This book provides a general introduction into aviation operations, covering all the relevant elements of this field and the interrelations between them.

Numerous books have been written about aviation, but most are written by and for specialists and assume a profound understanding of the fundamentals. This textbook provides the basics for understanding these fundamentals. This book explains how the commercial aviation sector is structured, and how technological, economic and political forces define its development and the prosperity of its players. Aviation Operations have become an important field of expertise. Airlines, airports and aviation suppliers, the players in aviation, need expertise on how aircraft are profitably exploited by connecting airports with the aim to add value to society. This book covers all relevant aspects on how they all do this, including contemporary challenges like capacity constraints and sustainability.

This textbook delivers a fundamental basic understanding of the commercial aviation sector at a level ideal for first-year university students and can be a tool for lecturers in developing an aviation operations curriculum. Finally, this book could also be of interest for people already employed within aviation, often specialists, seeking an accurate overview of all relevant fields of operations.
